Publisher's Summary

Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all - popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend. Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she is or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, Sam realizes that it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear that she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night aren't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory. Someone else knows - someone who wants to make sure that Sam stays quiet.

Critic Reviews

"This engrossing thriller packs a heady atmospheric punch with plenty of theatrical scares." (Kirkus)

Any additional comments?

This was my first J.L. Armentrout book, and I have to say that I am hooked. I really liked this book.<br/><br/>Sammy comes back home after having gone missing for 4 days. Sammy has no memories of what happened to her or whether her best frenemy is dead. She slowly starts to remember the truth about her not so perfect life, and the truth may be too much for Sammy to bear.<br/><br/>What I liked: I thought the book was well written. I really liked the main character and that does not happen too often for me, maybe only twice before (Emily from Since you've been gone and Scout from to kill a mockingbird). All the supporting characters were great. I especially liked Carson, he was so dreamy lol. I also like her twin brother Scott and his gf Julie, they were both very sweet to Sammy considering how mean she was to everyone. I liked that the accident gave Sammy a second chance at life (literally and figuratively), she regained some of that innocence she had lost the day she met Cassie. I loved the romance in the book. It wasn't cheesy or out of the blue. I actually felt how much Carson loved Sammy <3<br/><br/>What I didn't like: Sammy's parents. They were both strange. Not very affectionate with each other or their kids. They cared more about what society thought of them than their own daughter. Im glad Sammy's mother had a change of heart at the end of the book, she stopped drinking, and let go of some of that social hierarchy bs that hindered her soul.

Predictable

Themes where to repetitive. Moved along slowly. I did like the main characters and wanted to know who did it but this clue and that clue made the ending for me too predictable. But yes I did listen to the end. I enjoyed Nora roberts "the witness" much more; romance, smart chic, and a murder.

Unexpected twists and turns!

This story contains excellent detail and poignant language. There is an intense usage of imagery and figurative language that at times left me feeling as if I was truly in the story. Unlike most young adult fiction I found this book geared at a slightly older audience and its plot to be much less predictable than I had initially expected. The ending was an unforeseen surprise well worth the wait.

Such an awesome book! I couldn't stop reading!

Jennifer l. Armentrout is definitely my favorite author and this by far was my favorite book of hers. Such a creative story, it had me on the edge of my seat the entire book. I only wish it had lasted me longer but it was too good not to binge read.

Didn't realize it was a YA bok

This is my first book by this author, if I'd know it was about teens I wouldn't have purchased the book. I just couldn't get into the book at all.
